A while back I bought a box of notecards of various cities around the world from T.J. Maxx for a few dollars. They looked like little pieces of art to me so I snatched them up thinking I could do something fun with them. They've been sitting on my desk until just a few days ago when I finally had a plan. As you know, I've been redecorating the guest room and I thought these would make for a great DIY art piece in between the windows. When I think of a guest room I instantly think of traveling because usually the person staying in there would have traveled from another place. These little cards definitely speak to that. Now I just needed an idea of what to do with them, so off I went around the house in search of an existing item to help create some art with these cards.
Down in the basement I came across this empty frame that used to hang in our library room a while back. The best part...it's green! It's hard to tell from the dark picture (many of my projects occur when Charley is sleeping and it's dark out, hence the not so great pics). So the frame matches the bedside tables which is perfect because I wanted to add more bits of green into the room.
